Did You Know?

When Gatekeeper asks Katya if she received her message last night, Katya responds that after she watched "Last Call" she stayed up all night to work on the advertisement. This is a reference to "Last Call with Carson Daily" a talk show starring the ex-MTV veejay who also happens to be Jennifer Love Hewitt's ex-boyfriend.See more »
Factual errors: When Katya and her two friends are in an Indian Cafe, her friend is seen with a hookah (shisha) pipe in the mouth. However, when the shisha is shown by the camera, the terra cota cup is open. To smoke a shisha, that cup should be filled with tobacco, then covered by an aluminum foil, and topped with burning coals.See more »

Very clichéd but fun, 4 June 2007
Author: Gordon-11 from Earth

This film is about a woman who does everything to climb up the social ladder, and pretends to be someone who she isn't.

I bought this film for 1 pound, and it was not even second hand. Hence, I did not have much expectations for it.

It is obvious that this is made for TV. The close ups are too close that the face occupies 95% of the screen. The way the camera moves between Frangiapani and Katja in the Indian restaurant looks more like a soap opera than a film. The film is so full of cliché. The obligatory gay friend who is constantly suicidal is too over the top that is almost derogatory.

Despite all these shortcomings, I confess that I enjoyed the film. It is fun, brain-off film that makes you forget your troubles. Jennifer Love Hewitt looks stunning in the film. It's a comedy that works!
